Out of the good fascist’s text book, the conservative majority in the Greek parliament voted a law that forbids demonstrations while gives superpowers to a police already accused for violence, torture and far-right ideological attitude. That while Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ far-right government falls into a pattern of daily corruption and authoritarianism.

koul001_400For a year – since July 7th 2019 – Kyriakos Mitsotakis (best known as Koulis), has gradually ruined the already seriously wounded economy, has destroyed health and education and the only thing that “saved” his it was, however schizophrenic it might sounds, the pandemic. Coronavirus came to Mitsotakis as a present to blame and temporary cover his colossal failures to the Greek economy.

But even coronavirus could not hide the overwhelming corruption. An overwhelming looting of the national treasury, even the safe-net the last government had managed with a lot of sacrifices from the Greek people to save was looted from party members, friends and family. Literally family. A government with all the characteristic of an authoritarian state ruled by nepotism and corruption.

Greek experts reinsure that there is no way this new law will pass the Greek Supreme Court but most have doubts about an equally corrupted or often bullied by the government and Mitsotakis’ cronies judicature, with judges often openly supporters of the government, included in scandals or in cover ups of scandals. The latest is the huge cover up with the Novartis’ bribery scandal that includes a former prime minister and a few active ministers. All members of New Democracy, Kyriakos (Koulis) Mitsotakis party.

Of course the EU courts are the next thought but can you trust EU when they have left Viktor Orbán to apply laws that strangle democracy, freedom of speech, freedom of expression and still pride Hungary as a democracy and often use Hungary’s membership to the EU block as an alibi for his fascist regime. Or does it bother EU to talk as equal even in violation of the rights of another member state with the Turkey’s dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan?

With his latest displays of authoritarianism and fascism Koulis fills the picture of the contemporary fascist brotherhood: Orbán, Erdoğan, Mitsotakis.

While it is up to the Greek people to overthrough this menace of democracy from the land that ironically gave birth to democracy the next elections are in three years time, except …except if the Greek people demonstrate. Fill the streets with their loyalty to democracy and fight all her enemies.

PS. It is also noticeable the absolute failure of the new Greek President – chosen by Koulis - Katerina Sakellaropoulou, who acts more like Mitsotakis’ minister or employ than a president.
